In the meantime, happy friday:
I got an email from someone who'd just broken their Antony Gormley snowglobe, wondering if mine was for sale. I got mine down off the shelf to look at it, and discovered that some sort of ongoing chemical process is progressively bubbling the base and stripping the gilt coating from the little metal man. After I'd taken about twenty photographs of it, catching the sun from the front window, I realised I wasn't going to sell it to anyone.
The best of them are over on Flickr (click through to see). They're kind of dreamy -- if I get one of those digital frames, I might fill it with a whole slideshow of sunny snowglobe pictures.
*Yes I have been at the cinder toffee again.
